welchol and bile dump problems
Hi Kemberly, thanks for sharing this. My father-in-law had his gallbladder removed last year as well and many parts of your story sound quite familiar... I hope you get better and regain your strength.

Welchol
Oh my! It is so disheartening in how the doctors don't tell us about these bad effects! I have been off welchol two days now and can already tell a difference! Can you tell me what you are taking now? I am going to try taking lecithin, to break down fats in meals. Taking when I eat. I haven't started that yet but will post in a week or so to let you know how that works.
